The Rogue Nation of Empire of Lacrimosa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Xaozx with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.184 billion Empire of Lacrimosans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sul Nham. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Empire of Lacrimosan economy, worth a remarkable 6,674 trillion Xians a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 388,421 Xians, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, Empire of Lacrimosans caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Lacrimosa's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Imperial Loyalty.

Empire of Lacrimosa is ranked 19,731st in the world and 793rd in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 2,686.26 milliStalins.
